Conway Kids’ Triathlon

The Conway Kids’ Triathlon is a great experience for kids ages 6-15. The event kicks off with a pool-swim in the University of Central Arkansas HPER Center. The athletes take on a flat course with their bikes, with a scenic bridge route for the older kids (see below). They wrap up this triathlon with a flat out-and-back run to the spectators cheering them on at the finish line! This event also features an adapted division in partnership with Community Connections.

Course Information

Age is based on your age on 12/31/2022 – whatever your age is as of 12/31/2022 will be your race age. If you are under 6 years old, you can compete in the 6-year-old division.

     Age 6-10:  50 yd. swim |  2-mile bike  |  1/2 mile run

     Age 11-15:  100 yd. swim  | 4-mile bike  | 1-mile run


All participants who finish will receive a finishing medal.  The top 3 male and female participants in each age group will receive a trophy.  In addition, the top 3 male and female participants in each division (age 6-10 and age 11-15) will also receive a special award.

Race Day Order

The race will begin with the 11-15 age division with the oldest participants going in the water first.  After the 11-15 age division is on the course, the 6-10 division will start in the water, beginning with the oldest participants.

In each division, if you feel you have the potential to win an overall award, notify the starter in the pool so that you can be put in the first wave.

Once the 6-10-year-old participants are almost through the bike course, the Community Connections Adapted division will be started.  The transition will open for participants to pick up their bikes after all participants are through the bike transition and awards will begin after all participants are finished.
